A man from Doncaster is still seriously ill in hospital after being bitten three times by a snake.

The man's in a serious but stable condition in the James Cook Hospital in Middlesborough.

The scheme has been a success nationally and is now launching in Doncaster. Rachel Townsend has met a South Yorkshire couple who've been caring for one man for over 30 years.
The Avalon Group are taking charge of the Shared Lives scheme in Doncaster. More details can be obtained by logging onto their website:
